    The wood trim in the 97 is badly discolored, and needs replacement.
    So far I've found http://www.exoticwooddash.com/bit3.asp
    Seems like their medium burlwood would be close to OEM.
    Any one have any suggestions, experience with certain vendors?

    Much of the OEM stuff is discontinued. THere are a few replacement pieces still available. If you wish to retain it I would suggest you get a full matching set and replace all of it. The expense would not be that much different from "piecing" it and the end result would be much better.

    I just changed the wood trim on my '98 and after a lot of searching and requesting samples from several vendors I decided to go with Superior Dash, they are the current supplioer to Toyota in the US and have both real and synthetic wood. Not the cheapest but very good quality and fit.
    Go for the rela wood !! It looks a lot better and more than likely you will do it only once in mamy years. My full kit was $395 including shipping, taxes, etc.

    So you mean there is some OEM stuff still left?
    I really need an entire set, almost every piece has discoloration.
    mtrycr-the set I've been looking at is real wood, about $250. $400 seems to be a LOT of money. Does it really look like OEM? Thats all I'm interested in here, as close to stock as possible.

    It looks OEM, The price I gave you is with shipping, taxes, etc. I think I paid $100 extra compared to others, but it really looks nice. Check their web site: www.superiordash.com
    and ask for samples of the ones you like, I installed medium burlwood.
